Desuperheaters are put to use in a variety of applications across multiple industries. The usage can be from steam and vapor cooling and cool gases depending on the situation and needs. Here is a guide to the benefits and the broad applications of the desuperheater.
The primary function of a desuperheater is to lower the temperature of a superheated steam line using a cooling water source. The superheated steam or gas is directly contacted with the cooling water or fluid. This immediately begins the process of evaporation and absorption into the steam line.
The Komax Desuperheater utilizes a unique approach to desuperheating compared to conventional desuperheaters, using both a low-pressure spray nozzle directed upstream of the steam flow and using a patented Equalizer Mixing Module. This mixing module is specifically designed for gas/liquid mixing and can sheer water droplets, or cool fluid droplets to very fine sizes, which makes for quick and efficient absorption of water into the superheated steam line.
Desuperheaters can reduce the cost by 80 to 90 percent in the production.
Surface condensers are more efficient specifically when working with saturated steam. This process eliminates the requirement for adding tubes for the purpose of cooling superheated steam and prevents thermal expansion when the dry and hot steam enters the condenser.
There are a variety of industries both Industrial and Consumer that use desuperheaters.
Industrial and Manufacturing Industries
Consumer Based Industries
